Sports-themed Burp Cloths

Rosanne contacted me about a couple baby gift orders.
Nico's daddy likes soccer and Scotland, so Rosanne suggested a soccer ball and plaid ribbon. I've had this soccer ball design from Embroidery Library for a while, but hadn't stitched it out yet. (I LOVE their Simple Treasures designs!!) Instead of stitching it in three shades of gray/black, I decided to use green and blue for the shading to coordinate with the ribbon. Nico's name is stitched with Indie font from 8 Claws and a Paw.

For Chase's burp cloth, Rosanne requested a UF Gator motif/colors including a football. Originally I suggested a stacked monogram in orange and blue with football ribbon or my usual applique football with "Daddy's Little Gator". But after doing Nico's design, I realized I could do the same thing with EL's Simple Treasures Football. I used a couple shades of orange for the shading and blue for the text. I picked Tinker Toy from 8 Claws and a Paw to coordinate with the polka dots on the ribbon.

I won't comment on the Gator one (AHEM), but the soccer ball and plaid one is adorable! I LOVE that you thought to coordinate the colors the way you did. How smart!
